Senior Review Fall 2020

We hope you will join us for the Senior Studio’s final project presentations on Wednesday, December 16. The reviews run from 9:00 am – 11:30 am, 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm EST. The Senior Studio Review will happen across two events, morning and afternoon, and each one will have two separate Zoom sessions. Please don’t forget to RSVP.

This Fall's Senior Design Studio explored ways design can translate insights surrounding inclusivity in healthcare, through making, conversation, and debate. We are pleased that the UPMC Enterprises team provided expert support for the project, connecting teams to other resources in the health system whenever possible.
